The new deal gives Petersen what is believed to be the richest contract in the Pac-12.Petersen's new deal extends him three additional seasons and has an average compensation of $4.875 million throughout the deal. That marks a significant raise, as Petersen was slated to make $4.0 million in the final two years of his previous deal.

Fast-forward to today, and Kiffin has moved on as the head coach at Florida Atlantic. During an interview on SiriusXM radio earlier today, Kiffin seemed to take a subtle jab at his former boss when he was asked if he’d publicly treat his assistants the same way he was “No, that’s not really how I do it.

Alabama fans are probably ready to move on from the Lane Kiffin era, but the former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator has a way of lingering months When asked about his coaching style, Kiffin dropped this take on the listeners: “I’m not really big on humiliating the assistant coaches in front

Lane Kiffin spent three years on Nick Saban’s staff as offensive coordinator of the Alabama Crimson Tide. While the new Florida Atlantic Owls head coach obviously learned a thing or two from Saban, Kiffin seems to not agree with his former boss’ habit of “humiliating assistant coaches.”

Kiffin famously and publicly was on the receiving end of several Saban tirades during his tenure with the Tide. And while Kiffin recently avoided criticizing Saban directly for his methods, he made it clear it’s not how he runs a coaching staff.

How proposed NCAA rules would hurt high school coaches and players

  How proposed NCAA rules would hurt high school coaches and players The NCAA has proposed two rules directly relating to high school coaches, including one that governs when they can be hired and to what positions in the college ranks. In football, during a two-year period before a prospective student-athlete's anticipated enrollment and a two-year period after the prospective student-athlete's actual enrollment, an institution shall not employ (or enter into a contract for future employment with) an individual associated with the prospective student-athlete in any athletics department noncoaching staff position or in a strength and conditioning staff position.

Florida Atlantic Owls head coach Lane Kiffin seemed to take a shot at former boss, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban, when talking about coaching . “It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.

I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody. Lane Kiffin with his shiny new title and his big time head coaching gig. Ditching the sticks of Alabama and living on the beach in beautiful sunny Florida.

“Those things come up, and everybody has different ways of dealing with them,” Kiffin said during a recent appearance on SiriusXM College Sports Nation. “It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody. I write down notes. In the staff meeting, I explain what we want to get done.”

For what it’s worth, Saban doesn’t refer to the dressing-down of his assistants as “humiliating” them. He instead once colorfully called the outbursts “a– chewings,” which is how the Alabama head coach characterized a heated sideline confrontation with Kiffin during an eventual victory over Western Kentucky last season.

Kiffin’s discussion of differing coaching styles interestingly comes on the heels of a former Alabama player admitting the defensive unit routinely and purposely tried to foster situations where Saban would go off on Kiffin during practice.

Lane Kiffin had an interesting quote about Nick Saban on Tuesday while talking about his demeanor as head coach . It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.

Here's one way Lane Kiffin will be different as a head coach than Nick Saban.

Former Crimson Tide defensive lineman and NFL prospect Jonathan Allen said the defense would “try to get Coach Saban mad at [Kiffin] and try to get him yelled at in practice.”

“It was just during (drills),” Allen recalled, via Saturday Down South. “We would just try to blow it up and just destroy it and kill the offense and then you would know Kiffin’s just…gonna get it, after you just blow it up in the backfield. That’s probably the most fun we had at Alabama during practice this year, just watching Coach Saban lay into Kiffin.”

If that was the case, it’s no surprise things ended so badly for the Saban-Kiffin partnership.

Samsung to update software over 'red screen' smartphone .
Electronics giant Samsung will this week offer an unusually early software update for its newly-released Galaxy S8 phone, it said Monday after some consumers complained of red-tinted screens. The launch of the device is a key step for the South Korean tech firm as it seeks to move on from last year's humiliating withdrawal of the Galaxy Note 7 over exploding batteries, which hammered the firm's once-stellar reputation.
